Mysterious jet is operated through Million Air

On Monday, June 16, around noon, a huge, white jet, looking brand new and with no markings, flew into the Medford airport. Several of us noticed it and all commented that it was quite an awesome sight. Any information on it?

Well, Jerry, we here at Since You Asked take a particular interest in shiny things, so we're glad to help. We called Bern Case, manager of Medford/Rogue Valley International Airport, to find out about that plane.

Case told us it's a private jet operated through Million Air, one of the two fixed-base operation franchises at the airport.

If you're unfamiliar with FBOs, they're refueling facilities and hangars for private aircraft.

Unfortunately, Jerry, that's about where the info ends. We called Million Air Medford to see whether we could learn anything else about the jet, but they do not comment to newspapers as company policy.

A quick look at the company's website — www.millionair.com — shows a list of the aviation services and amenities at the Medford office, 2040 Milligan Way, and it all seems quite posh.

In addition to aircraft refueling, maintenance, detailing and storage, the site offers gourmet catering, a theater room, lounges, conference rooms and, brace yourself Jerry, Otis Spunkmeyer cookies.

SYA is looking into moving our operations there instead of our dark corner of the newsroom.
